Fontavera wines are crafted by winemaker Soledad Adriasola Lang. Soledad has strongly voiced her concerns of the impact of climate change and advocated the need to support the future of organic viticulture combined with higher altitude plantings. The wines of Fontavera just north of Tuscany’s mountainous ranges are a direct result of her ambition, to seek out older, organically farmed vineyards grown on higher, cooler sites.
Winemaking: Organic grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted before whole bunch pressing to old oak.
2018 Vintage: A vintage that brought a more even ripening season to Italy bringing yields closer to previous averages.The berries ripened, developing fine natural acidities whilst arriving at excellent flavour and phenolic ripeness. The wines will show bright fruit flavours with lifted aromatics. This is a fine vintage for white and red wines.
Tasting Note: This supple and juicy Sangiovese simply shimmers in the glass. Soft, approachable and best drunk in its youth, it displays classic varietal traits of berries and cherries with a hint of spice. The palate delivers berry fruit with savoury edges, seamless tannins and bright acidity. Perfect on its own or with a bowl of pasta with a rich, meaty ragu.
